Preschool registration slated to begin April 19

Waco News

WACO — Hi! Hope your spring break is going well. The sunshine helps a lot, though the temperatures are a smidgen cooler than one may like. The coming weekend forecast looks great with 70s peeking in!

For those of you who have children between the ages of 3 and 5 (after October 1), screening dates for Madison County preschool registration (Madison County schools, Richmond Head Start and Berea Head Start) will be beginning April 19. May 17 and May 24 also are included as registration dates with other dates to be determined.

To begin the process, please call the Madison County Preschool Department at 625-6037. Eligibility is based on family income, unless the child has a disability.

Flatwoods Christian Church will be taking photos for the new directory. Call the church, if you haven’t signed up for yours yet. There’s still slots open.

Happy birthday wishes to Tina Fox, March 29; Patty Willis, March 31; Debbie Davidson and Roseanna Wilson, April 3; Deidra Brown and Devonna Hensley Abner, April 6; Courtney VanWinkle Dunn, April 7; and Sue Rice, April 11.

Happy anniversary wishes go out to Marion and Anna Fox, April 9.  

Deepest sympathies to the family of Myrtle Lee Pitcher Mason, 83, formerly of Waco, the widow of Evans “Tojo” Mason, who passed away Sunday, March 24, at Baptist Health in Richmond.

Sympathies also are extended to the family of Anna Spivey Pucket who passed away March 20.

Sympathies are offered to the family and friends of “Chick” Whittaker who passed away last week.  Chick was one of those people who you thought would be around forever.  His presence surely will be missed.

That’s about it for this week. Have a great one!

Congratulations to Mildred Maupin for having her meatloaf appear in the Lexington Herald-Leader on March 6, thanks to Audrey Cooper who submitted this recipe.

  • Amanda-Sears-c.jpg Cicada-killer wasps are here

    The extension office has received numerous phone calls over the past couple of weeks about large wasps hovering in yards all over the county.
    This insect is called the cicada killer, and despite its aggressive name, it is not something to be scared of.

    Maintaining a controlled breeding and calving season can be one of the most important management tools for cow-calf producers.
    Uniform, heavier and more valuable calves are key reasons to keep the breeding season short.

  • 7-29 Nostalgia-Glenmore.jpg Paper boys learned life, business lessons

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
    There were 10 or 12 of us who rolled out of bed at 5 a.m. every day, jumped on our bicycles and headed downtown to the Glyndon Hotel and picked up our papers for delivery.

  • Dick-Ham.jpg Here’s why teachers aren’t paid enough

    The following were included in last year’s exams and were answered by 16-year-old high school students. The answers are genuine, and we must remember that these youngsters will grow up to vote, marry and become parents. It’s a scary thought.

    Hello readers, it’s a stormy Monday evening as I write this, and I’ve been thanking the Lord all day for the good rain – over an inch in the gauge now, and it looks like more before morning.
